[46.9%・41 Years Old・Distilled in 1975・Bottled in 2016・Joint Bottling of Jens Drewitz, Max Righi (Whisky Antique) and Diego Sandrin (Lion’s Whisky)・Single Cask Release of 230 Bottles]
Expressive and wondrous, pinewood with a satisfying cigar creaminess. The wood imparts a stately presence as soft white fruits caress lovingly, as per a quality Fino cask. Rounded with hints of sherbet, honeyed granola and sweet cherries. Absolutely divine nose.
Palate & Finish:
The initial burst of maraschino cherries is immensely pleasing, the spices show a glimpse of strength before reverting to the lovely softness of fragrant white fruits with a slight waxy coating that stretches on, leaving much to imagination.
Did I mention that this dram is immensely pleasing? It’s exceptionally marvellous on the nose.
The flavours have been laid out in a manner that accentuates the spirit characters of a Speysider of the old; with the Fino cask only serving in enhancing the experience, providing a tenderness that can only been achieved after decades of refining..
